Does not Barack Obama understand that the blame game only go so far, are does he believe in American people are absolute idiots? He has been president for over three years, no job in the world let’s you blame your predecessor after that length of time. Even so he still doing it, or trying to.
I read the title and first couple lines of Bridget Johnson‘s piece Obama Claims Bush Administration Dropped the Ball on Iran in PJ Tatler and had to walk away.
As always his speech was somewhat less than truthful as you’ll see in a second:
President Obama sought to convince the crowd at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee conference today that “when the chips are down, I have Israel’s back.”
He also placed blame on the Bush administration for letting Iran become the threat it is today, claiming that a policy of putting pressure on Iran was “in tatters” when he took office.
“If during this political season you hear some question my administration’s support for Israel, remember that it’s not backed up by the facts,” the president said.
He also said he has “no apologies” for pursuing the Middle East peace process, which is effectively stalled, while continually pressing that he is a friend of Israel.
“As you examine my commitment, you don’t just have to count on my words,” Obama said. “You can look at my deeds. Because over the last three years, as president of the United States, I have kept my commitments to the state of Israel. At every crucial juncture – at every fork in the road – we have been there for Israel. Every single time.”
At roughly the same time Obama was giving his speech it was a conference at at President Barack Obama’s alma mater. conference featured Chicago-based extremist–and former Obama acquaintance–Ali Abunimah. the purpose of the conference was to discuss a one state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that would eliminate Israel as a state. Read about it at Breitbart. com
So at roughly the same time Obama was trying to regain the confidence of the Jewish community, his radical friends were suggesting that Israel be eliminated.
